Big on kindness, especially to the 4 legged friends, kind of sketchy on housework and such, but we prefer to spend time on important stuff!

OK, so I know that I'm actually fat simply because of bad food choices, but it is interesting how much of my day truly is taken up with feeding things, or thinking about feeding must be easier to be a man around here, just have to turn up and eat.

People are grazers, so it does make sense that you want to eat multiple times a day. The hard part is eating the right stuff though, I definitely agree.

Sooo....don't allow junk in the house! Or only allow a bit of things, and only eat a certain amount, ie 2 cookies are allowed per day. Cut up fruit and veggies at the beginning of the week so that they are the easiest thing to snack on instead of the junk.

BTW...I'll let you know when I can follow my own advice! LOL JK. Its getting easier, because we didn't do it cold turkey.

I do all the food prep in our house too. Can you imagine just walking into the house and saying, "What's for dinner?", knowing that something hot and good awaits you? Unbelieveable!

I want to do that!! Oh heck, I'd even settle for going into the kitchen to start dinner and not having to spend 45mins washing all the dishes first.

Ahhh I feel the same way, except ym grandma's a cook and is always making new stuff that she wants me to cry that is soo unhealthy for me. She uses real everything and it all tastes so darn good. I wake up, feed the horses, snakc, go to school, lunch, go throw horses some hay, work, grandma's, feed horse's again, and supper. I just love food soooo much.

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.
